    yuks... what a topic to start on... It was a really childhood thing how I become scare of them. BUT the worst was just afew months ago, I was walking when suddenly, I felt someone "falls" on my head, it gives me a shiver! And my... shiver was right! The "xiao qiang" don noe how falls on my head... I felt my blood flowing out of my brain and I almost black out. Pengs.. That was early in the morning walking pass a kopitiam. My friends force me to buy toto cos they thought I got luck! siao... only 1 number.
    sorry... I abit out of topic.

    fear causes us to be irrational, dun blame me for killing the coach man!

    to fear them is one thing.. to discuss ways and means to exterminate them, delighting in the graphical aspects is another!

    Guess it won't help that my suggestion is to mount cockroach heads on toothpicks as a deterrant to others?
    Nope, what i do is i lovingly pick up the little critter and gently release it to freedom out of the window... ... of my 24th floor flat.
    Sorry, furrypaws...

    My grandfather really hates cocokroaches.
    Though he walks slow... but he can really run very fast when he sees a cockroach.
    He will chase after them, grab them and pull off their heads.
    he said that's the best way to ensure they are dead

    let me put my message across CLEARLY, i never ever have any delight or say anything about enjoying my kill! i just hunt them down so they need not need to crawl over me.

    Actually have you noticed the older generation is rarely afraid of cockroaches. Both my grandparents just use a thin tissue to pick up a roach when they see one and throw it away. Its like a piece of litter or something. Very Garang ppl

    There was one time when I was in NS.

    We had this combat engineer vehicle track that had been rolled up for months. We were told to unroll it. Literally hundreds of cockroaches came running out all over. We had a good time walking around stomping on them.

    For info, cockroaches can stay alive for another 5-7 days without their heads
